Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

J.J. Abrams and Tavis Smiley are teaming up to bring the upcoming book “Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days” to television for Warner Bros. The book comes out tomorrow and was written by Tavis Smiley. The show has been set up with WBTV for a while now though and now that J.J. Abrams and his company Bad Robot are aboard, I expect this project to gain steam.

The book is described as a novelistic rendering of the final moments of Michael Jackson. It explores his highs and lows in his last few days of life. If you remember, Michael Jackson was set to perform at London’s O2 arena for 50 shows, titled ‘This is It‘. He died a couple of weeks before the first show at 50 years old. The last few rehearsal days were documented and shown in theaters and on home video, directed by Kenny Ortega.

Michael Jackson was more or less a recluse and wanted more than anything his privacy, which he couldn’t seem to escape the public eye. I can’t believe it’s been seven years since his death. I’m sure Smiley and Abrams will do a good job here. More updates as they become available.

Movie Quotes

Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
I flew with your old man. VF-51, the Oriskany. You're a lot like he was. Only better... and worse. He was a natural heroic son of a bitch that one.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
So he DID do it right.
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
Yeah, he did it right... Is that why you fly the way you do? Trying to prove something? Yeah your old man did it right. What I'm about to tell you is classified. It could end my career. We were in the worst dogfight I ever dreamed of. There were bogeys like fireflies all over the sky. His F-4 was hit, and he was wounded, but he could've made it back. He stayed in it, saved three planes before he bought it.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
How come I never heard that before?
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
Well that's not something the State Department tells dependents when the battle occurred over the wrong line on some map.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
So you were there?
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
I was there. What's on your mind?
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
My options, Sir.
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
Simple. First you've acquired enough points to show up tomorrow and graduate with your Top Gun class, or you can quit. There'd be no disgrace. That spin was hell, it would've shook me up.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
So you think I should quit?
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
I didn't say that. The simple fact is you feel responsible for Goose and you have a confidence problem. Now I'm not gonna sit here and blow sunshine up your ass, Lieutenant. A good pilot is compelled to evaluate what's happened, so he can apply what he's learned. Up there, we gotta push it. That's our job. It's your option Lieutenant. All yours.
Pete "Maverick" Mitchell:
Sorry to bother you on a Sunday, Sir, but thank you very much for your time.
Mike "Viper" Metcalf:
No Problem. Good luck.
